I will be in the US around about the late Sep and thinking of doing the Route 66 from Vegas/Minneapolis.  What is the weather going to be like?  No typhoon or hurricane or terrible storms ???Smile

That should be a good time for the trip, well past the heat of summer.  Tropical storms (the US term is hurricane) do tend to peak in September.  But they are big, slow, and lose punch rapidly after landfall.  Your closest point will be well inland....and there the effects are generally steady rain and erratic winds.  You can easily adjust trip plans if one threatens to interfere. 

And you do realize that Vegas and Minneapolis are NOT on 66...and that these are side-trips?  Vegas is close, Minneapolis is not.
